    The RAC is just a Bio Wheel for aquariums, from the 90's.

    readings: ammonia is off the chart again. but nitrite, nitrate and phosphate decreased. ph remains the same...


    the tank: still dark...


    screen growth: the color of the algae lightened somehow...

    That water looks like my local Bristol channel even with the second highest tidal range in the world!

    More ammonia = more food for green growth.

    The waste is still decomposing from organic into inorganic, so ammonia will continue to be produced.

    and the ammonia will be converted directly to plant matter instead of turning into nitrite then nitrate, right? but let's say the ammonia along with nitrite, nitrate and phosphate dropped to 0, what will the algae consume?

    Nothing, it won't grow. It must have nitrogen in some form.
